Nothing today, but Im off work tomorrow, and wife is doing a yard sale with some family, so I have all day to make progress on my rear bumper build. I intend to wake my neighbors up with the grinder at dawn.

It's not much but I installed my new plates today. I don't ever drive this thing on the street but it is licensed and insured just in case I have to in an emergency.

I also replaced both tail lights. My original driver side one was cracked and they were smoked out and I didn't like the look much.

I know, vanity plates are ghey but I figured what the heck.

I also fixed the rear hatch opener. I used to have to push in on the hatch slightly while pulling the handle. I took the inside panel off and made a small adjustment to the threaded lever arm and shazam, works perfect now. My drivers door does the same thing. Hope the fix is just as easy.

Alright, I have had terrible front end vibes for the past two days, I've changed the passenger side bearings/hub, tightened track bar, tightened drag link, rotated tires. I don't even know where to look next... I can't go over 30mph

Started with 10 ft of 2x4 3/16 wall and went from there, just did a lot of cutting and capping to give it some form. Still a lot to do though!

Replaced my front shocks and found the vaccuum leak that I didnt even know was a vac line so my AC is working again. Pretty pleasant surprise, esp since I have a full charge of R12.

Managed to break my soundbar getting it in, but I only paid a dollar for it anyway.

I think when i first tested them they were wired wrong, they made some sparks. Pretty sure they got fired.
